CHENNAI: The Tamil Nadu government has sanctioned Rs 1.93 crore to the State Housing Board for the completion of the 60 ex-MLA hostel rooms, eight guest houses and a conference hall in the Omandurar Government Estate. According to a government order 195 dated December 8, the additional funds will be used to furnish the newly constructed structures.

The allocation of funds comes after the Tamil Nadu Housing Board was orally instructed by the Assembly Speaker on September 26 to immediately get the structures ready for inauguration.

With the allocated funds of Rs 39.63 crore insufficient to complete the project, a proposal of Rs 1,93,30,500 (Rs 1.93 crore) was drawn up by the housing board to furnish the structures with cots, teapoys, sofa sets, tables and chairs. The estimate was drawn, based on a valuation obtained from M/S TANSI, and is inclusive of contingencies, petty supervision charges and supervision charges.

The Omandurar Government Estate is named after Omandur Ramasamy Reddy,  who served as the Premier of Madras Presidency from March 1947 to April 1949.
